Up and Down the Plains

This has been a chase of driving endurance. Early in the week we targeted SE Nebraska for the potential for supercells. During the journey we stopped at a couple of areas known for big things (balls and benches). While storms formed along the cold front the CAP held tight in SE NE. Nevertheless we were treated to some structure and experienced 65+ winds and some small hail. A quick 10.5 hour trip the next day put us in the panhandle of TX where we got to see a dying LP cell. Finally another 9 hour trip to south-central NE rewarded us with a beautiful supercell w/wall cloud and funnel. This cell evolved into a small bow and with terrific structure.
